$700 Rig to suggest to my viewers - Page 2

post #11 of 15

The AMD-based build could be had with an FX-6300 at a $40-50 savings, while still maintaining a similar performance record compared to the 8350 (in many current games) vs the 2500k-based build but still with a better GPU at $60 less.

 

An effective i5-k LGA-1155 based build should have a budget minimum of $850, and a decent-sized SSD should be a part of the build. Otherwise, it is simply not worth the sacrifice in GPU and everything else.

There's not a single consumer video card right now that is capable of using PCIe 3.0 so don't worry about that...

between nit picking for no pcie 3.0 and "only has 1 6gb sata port", both of which yeild nothing close to their stated maximums, I'd fix the mobo, SSD, PSU beforehand

That is my youtube channel. I am very nit-picky, and what do you mean fix the mobo, SSD, and PSU before hand?

I might be wrong, but doesn't PCI Express 3.0 have to be supported by the cpu as well? I don't believe AMD or Sandy Bridge have PCI Express 3.0 support?

What I mean to say is, I agree with others that you need to work a better mobo in to the budget.

As I recall, the only CPUs to support PCIe 3.0 are Ivy Bridge i5/i7 models. Not even the i3 Ivy Bridge chips include it.
